-- GENERAL --
Seasoned traveler. Experienced host. Lived in Austin on & off 12 years. Also put in time in NY, CO, NM, CA, WA, SC & more. Currently bridging art, tech & social innovation in Austin. I haven't hosted in a couple of years, so please be nice ^~
-- AS A HOST --
I'm generally warm, friendly, full of info & genuinely curious about new ideas, global issues & culture. From time to time, I may be out in the living room playing some music (in headphones, most likely), chatting with a friend or reading. While I mostly keep quite busy & to myself, I love guests to have a great experience in Austin & at my home. This is my sanctuary, so I hope it can at least be that for you. Many of my friends travel to Austin from around the world & it's my pleasure to show them around. Being a lifelong traveler, I also understand a little bit about what that can be like & I try to meet at least the basic needs for my guests. I keep a clean, safe, warm & welcoming home.
-- AS A GUEST -- I look for much of the same. Since I generally have friends & business in the cities I travel, I tend to stay very active. While I am not against chatting w/ my hosts, I usually look for a place to stay where I can feel safe to chill, relax & mostly be left alone in peace & quiet.
-- TRAVELING -- Planning to do more travel again in Spring 2015. It's been since early last year & feels far longer!
